To the editor:

We want to express our deepest appreciation to our volunteer fire department for their amazing service and rescue of our beloved puppy Angie from what would likely have been a tragic ending.

About a week ago our dog found herself stranded about 50 feet below the edge of our bluff and about 150 feet above the water, trapped along the sheer bluff by some vegetation that must certainly have caught her fall.

We were in a bit of a panic and finally called 911, and were greatly relieved when at least seven of our local volunteers arrived and quite skillfully rigged up and rappelled over the bluff, placing our dog in a fitted harness then hauling her up to safety. All of these folks dropped whatever they were doing and came to the rescue. We were so impressed with their skill and selflessness, and are very grateful to them.  Thank you so very much.
